Killing End
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Herman Yau.


Dick (Andy Hui) and Junk (Simon Loui) are CID agents who cross some of the top triad bosses in Hong Kong and soon find themselves out of options and with nowhere to hide. In most movies it seems the cops have all the cards and all the resources, but this is an essay in helplessness against entrenched power. In the middle of it all Dick falls in love with a woman (Loletta Lee) who has a number of disorders, including extreme forgetfulness and acute hyper-sensitivity. Herman Yau handles the cast and the material expertly, and knows how to bring the best out of Simon Loui, with whom he worked on the early TROUBLESOME NIGHT films, and who also co-wrote the script.
